Summary of Masamune-kun's Revenge
As a child, Masamune Makabe is rejected by a rich and beautiful girl named Aki Adagaki, who calls him "little pig" because of his fat boy looks. Seeking revenge, Masamune works hard to better himself and returns as a drop-dead gorgeous, if narcissistic, high school student. When he encounters Aki again, he is ready for revenge. With the help of Aki's servant Yoshino Koiwai, Masamune slowly begins to build his relationship with Aki, with the intention of breaking her heart when the time comes. However, as his friendship with Aki begins to grow, Masamune begins to question the aims of his devious plans and whether this is what his heart really desires.
